"Wabi-Sabi, the Japanese aesthetic, is the ability to perceive beauty in its essence. Simplicity without extravagances. Harmony of natural materials."

Skimming across my new favorite architectural site, Dezeen, I came across this place, called Wabi-Sabi.  Russian designer, Andrey Gorozhankin, renovated an apartment and added a curved ceiling, made of...get this...lime and wax!!  The contrasting white and espresso leaves this place feeling warm and open.  The curved ceilings and the exquisite staircase are art in and of themselves, don't you think?
